At Ortega 120, you get the best of both worlds. This upscale Redondo Beach Mexican hotspot puts you right on the Pacific Coast Highway, with scenic views and breezy nights, but it has the kitchen sensibilities of a true south-of-the-border abuela. Inside the colorful dining room, the guacamole comes fast and thick, but it won't last long when paired with the hand-patted tortillas, fried on site. You'll pay a little extra for this location and quality, but one taste of the enticing Tierra Y Mar (the Mexican equivalent to Surf & Turf, with farm-raised skirt steak and plump Mexican white shrimp) and you won't miss the few extra dollars. Or head to the well-stocked bar, brimming with mescals and tequilas, for a 16-ounce house margarita that will put you in the beach mindset after just a few sips.
